 Rosh,  
 First  give  the  details  of  your  tank  dimension,  next  give  the  total  number  of  golds  and  molly's  you  have..  
 And  about  the  java  moss,  your  golds  will  make  a  snack  of  it.  so  it  doesn't  matter  whether  they  grow  or  not..
 and  I  don't  think  molly's  will  leave  the  golds  in  peace..  so  better  remove  them.

 Ok  good,
 Move  all  your  six  golds  to  your  3  footer,  and  the  molly's  to  the  2  footer..
 and  don't  add  more  fishes  to  your  3  footer  as  the  capacity  of  it  is  enough  for  the  6  golds  as  they  will  grow  large  and  need  that  space.
 move  the  java  moss  to  the  2  footer,  it  needs  time  to  adjust  to  your  water  conditions.  once  adjusted  it  will  grow  nicely.
 you  can  add  any  hard  leaved  plants  like  anubias,  ferns  and  crypts  to  your  gold  tank,  delicate  plants  will  be  eaten  raw  by  the  goldies.
 about  the  food,  any  good  quality  granular  dry  food  is  ok,  try  to  feed  them  2-3  times  a  day.  put  enough  so  that  they  are  consumed  with  in  5  minutes,  if  food  is  left  over  after  5  minutes  remove  it.  you  can  feed  greens  and  boiled  vegetables  like  peas,  carrot,  beans  etc.  add  live  food  to  the  diet  when  ever  possible.
 golds  produce  a  lot  of  shit,  so  filter  is  the  most  important  gadget.  since  your  tank  has  a  volume  of  90  gallons  or  350  liters,  so  your  filter  must  have  the  minimum  of  500  gallons/hour  rating  or  1800  liters/hour  rating.  so  check  the  ratings  on  your  filter.

 Don't  mix  with  other  incompatible  fishes,  better  keep  gold  only  tank.
 Maintain  good  water  condition..  like  along  with  good  filtration  do  weekly  25-30%  water  changes.
 balanced  healthy  food,  and  finally  lots  and  lots  of  space..
 And  do  lots  of  home  work  by  reading  materials  related  to  golds  on  the  net..

 I  never  consider  Goldfish  to  be  a  beginer  /  easy  to  take  care  fish.  They  are  super  active  and  super  sensitive.  Lack  of  care,  and  you  got  goldfish  dead.  By  now  you  must  have  known  the  tons  of  poop  they  make.
 
 Anyways,  go  with  what  experts  already  said,  bloodworm,  pellets,  flakes  are  good.  I  would  also  recommend  twice  water  change  schedule  per  week!

 gold  fish  are  omnivorous  and  more  towards  veggy  so  live  blood  worms  should  be  avoided  completely.
 feed  them  soaked  pellets,  I  recommend  Hikari.  some  times  boiled  vegetables.  try  to  do  twice  a  week  water  change

 Gold  Fish  eat  a  lot  of  different  food.
 Try  Hikari/Ocean  Free  pellets,  they  bring  out  the  red  and  the  orange  in  them.I  myself  have  3  golds  and  they  are  very  intelligent  and  playful.
 I  just  feed  them  pellets.
 But  make  sure  that  you  do  some  regular  water  changes  so  that  it  reduces  stress  due  to  nitrogen  contamination.
 All  the  best.
